My husband and I wanted a quiet and relaxing weekend getaway, not too far from home in Chicago. Several people recommended The Harbor Grand and they certainly steered us in the right direction. The rooms were very clean, quiet, darkened nicely when closing the curtains and had plush bedding. We picked the suite over the water view, in order to... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Harbor Grand in suites with another couple. Our room was okay, furniture was nicked up quite a bit that a few minutes with a furniture marker could have fixed. The bed linens were great and our room was quiet. We had trouble with our A/C the whole time we were there, either it wouldn't... More

Beautiful property, friendly staff and charming town. Stunning views of the harbor and quick, casual walk to the beach. I would highly recommend staying here but there is one downfall...the price is a bit high.

We just returned from a great four-night stay at the Harbor Grand. The hotel isn't fancy, but it's clean and simply styled which is perfect for a family vacation. The amenities are what makes this hotel stand out from the rest. My daughter loved the breakfast basket that arrived at our door every morning, along with eating Ben and Jerry's... More

We spent a long weekend here and absolutely enjoyed it. Beautiful room, great location, really thoughtful amenities, such as bringing you breakfast in a basket and having bikes you can sign out for an hourlong bike ride. We loved it here and would definitely come back.

Although the rooms are a bit on the pricey side...I still give it a 5 for a rating because it proved to be a nice splurge. My Husband and I went for one night for our 10 yr anniversary. We stayed in the Harbor View King room...view was fantastic! Fireplace is an awesome touch along with the complimentary continental breakfast... More

"You can tell the people there pay special attention to detail," wrote one of the other reviewers here; I was thinking the same thing. It really sets the place apart. Our family of 4 spent a couple of nights there in a suite, and we were never told "no" or "sorry, costs extra," in reply to any or our many... More

My husband has a annual meeting every year and we usually visit bed and breakfast places this year they chose Harbor Grand. It is always in January and usually the coldest weekend of the year but the fireplace next to the bed is all you need. Staff very attentive, view was breath taking still icy view and at night you...

Lovely hotel on the marina. Rooms are upscale, pool area is excellent. Love the amenities...like the s'mores on the terrace and breakfast delivered to your room.

Had a great weekend at this resort. We had a two queen bed water view room with a huge walk in shower and two person jacuzzi tub. Beds were comfortable and the hotel was very quiet even for a weekend stay! The hotel offered spa massages and great little extras like Ben and Jerrys ice cream available at the front... More
